Waterbird Count, September 9

Duck migration picked up today and I had two large flocks fly in from the east and land in the vicinity of Pointe La Barbe. Unfortunately, due to distance, heat shimmer, and the low morning light, I wasn’t able to identify them. Nonetheless, it was still a decent migration day.
